2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bitters just don’t hold up for commercial distribution, so get em local or brew em yourself. With that said the aroma is caramelized sugar sweetness with a stale bread smell. The favor is much the same with a lot of toffee flavor and the burton on trent body and saltiness you’d expect. A muted version of a great style not worth the money here in the states. Get your bitters fresh, young and tender.

Aroma is slightly hoppy, gentle but nice. Pours with medium to a lot of head. More carbonation than usual. Quite pale with an interesting aftertaste that evolves in to a slightly honey-like sensation. Not quite well balanced but still ok.

A beer that ticks all the right "Bitter" boxes and is of a strength that allows one to partake as one would like. What’s not to like?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint bottle. Dark amber with a little foam that does not last long. A malty aroma that also has fruit. Not big. The flavor begins spicy and there is some unpleasant sourness underneath. Floral and a bit of toffee. Bitterness is moderate. This is just ok.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl can from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Mild malty and caramelly aroma with fruity notes, noticable, but mildly hoppy and hits of dried fruits, herbs and spices. A bit sweet with malty and mildly hoppy flavours and a decently bitter finish. Not quite my thing, but fair enough.
